Family destroys $15K cash in chicken nugget tragedy7/26/2012
In a financial tragedy of tear-jerking proportions, a family has been rendered penniless by the seemingly innocuous act of heating up the oven to give the kids some chicken nuggets. When an unidentified mother in Sydney, Australia, turned the cooker on (apparently a rare event), she had no idea that her husband had used it to store the $15,000 he’d received from the sale of his car. Australian money, strangely, is made from plastic, and the entire wad — every cent the already struggling family had — was melted beyond salvation. "After a while it started to sink in, you've got kids, a mortgage, a family car to run and I'm thinking what am I going to do," he said. We’d recommend heading to the nearest divorce court — if he had a car. [Source]
